"Best Blondie recipe I have ever tried! I left off the icing one time for less calories and it still tasted just as great. Very moist and full flavor."

"I added some orange flavoring. 1 1/2 teaspoons of Watkins pure orange extract and a bit more in the icing. Super good. They were gobbled up before anything else and people were swooning over them!"
